A couple of nice pale ales

Mad River Brewing Steelhead Extra Pale Ale

Web Stuff:  Bright golden hued ale of medium body with a spicy/floral hop character and a very mild bitterness. Goes well with poultry, fish/sushi & spicy foods.

Taste:  I'll be buying this one again.  The hops are nicely balanced by a slightly sweet aftertaste.
Cost: Mix & Match
Grade: B+

Southern Tier phin & matt's extraordinary ale

Web stuff: When we sat down to collaborate on this beer, we knew we had to create something extraordinary. After sampling a wide array of great beers, we hit upon an idea: use vast amounts of whole hops, the finest malted barley North America has to offer, and crystal filtered artesian water. Thus creating this classic American style pale ale.

Flavor: It's kind of the inverse of the Mad River beer.  It's sweet in the fore, and slightly bitter in the finish.
Cost: Mix & Match
Grade: B
